Organic Gyokuro Green Tea
Our organic Gyokuro (pronounced gyo-KUR-o) represents the pinnacle of Japanese green teas. It is shaded prior to harvesting, which stresses the tea plant, resulting in higher chlorophyll content. In the cup, this creates a fuller-body and bolder vegetal quality. In addition, the light green infusion exhibits a sweet and nutty flavor that is less bitter than our Sencha. Unlike many “Japanese” green teas available in the United States, this organic Gyokuro is actually grown in Japan.
Sustainability is a cornerstone of Arbor Teas’ business philosophy. In addition to offering an exclusively organic selection of teas, they recently became the first tea company to offer their whole catalog in 100% backyard compostable packaging. They’ve also carbon-offset the entire supply chain of their products, from origin to the customer, making Arbor Teas the greenest option for Earth-conscious tea drinkers, and one of few tea companies recognized by Green America.
